"Moraine Lake is a popular camp spot for those climbing South Sister in Oregon. We went during a weekday to attempt to "beat the crowds" and did so somewhat successfully.
The view overlooking both Moraine Lake and South Sister is breathtaking and well worth the short hike to the lake.
If you're feeling up to it, the grueling trek up to the summit of South Sister is unbeatable - just go early to avoid a crowded peak.
Also, close your tent because the chipmunks will steal your food!"

This photo at First Lake captures the spirit of a great camp spot. You can almost smell the fresh mountain air and feel the warmth of the sun through the trees.
